Last week, while passing by our local Purdy’s store, I saw that they had their fall chocolates out 😀 Who am I to pass up Pumpkin anything, so we grabbed a Pumpkin Truffle, Pumpkin Caramel and a Lemon Cream just to change things up a little 😉 They were all yummy too!! The Pumpkin ones had a great pumpkin spice taste to them and the Lemon had tiny pieces of rind that made it tangy…omnomnom!! Get your own chocolates while they’re in season…especially if you’re a Pumpkin Spice flavour lover like myself!!
It was my BFF’s birthday this week, and I wanted to get her a treat, so I stopped at the Bake Sale Shop. Last time my hubby and I had gotten Chocolate Mint, Chocolate Peanut Butter and Strawberry Shortcake. And this time, we got (counter clock wise) Chocolate Peanut Butter, Lemon, Nutella and Red Velvet. We’ve tried the Lemon and Red Velvet, and to be honest, the Lemon was disappointing. The Red Velvet was good though, especially since it had a cream cheese frosting, which is how it should be. Next up will be the Nutella…hopefully it won’t disappoint either!!
I can’t think of a better way, to end an evening, then with a wonderfully tart piece of lemon meringue pie…omnomnom. I can’t bring myself to have at it, and make my own from scratch, because I’m still a bit intimidated by the meringue. So, this was yet another store bought pie, but was every bit as good as it always is – whenever we buy it 🙂
